RICHMOND — Courtney Richey has dominated opponents throughout her Humboldt career. The All-State pitcher had not lost a game outside of the state tournament since her freshman year and the Cubs had not lost a game the entire season. All that changed Thursday night when they took the field in Richmond against Wellsville.

“One bad game this time of year and you are done,” Humboldt coach Brad Piley said.

Wellsville has been Humboldt’s kryptonite across sports over the last year. They eliminated an undefeated Cub baseball team on Wednesday night in the regional final. They ended the boy’s basketball season in the playoffs earlier this year. And last season they knocked the Cubs out of the state baseball tournament.
